The former US president hinted (Donald Trump) That he may start his own social network after Facebook and Twitter expelled him, and it now appears that these plans are taking shape.
Trump’s chief adviser (Jason Miller) told Jason Miller Channel Fox News that the former president plans to return to social media by launching his own social network within two to three months.
Miller was not specific about the platform, but he insisted it would redefine the game and attract tens of millions of people.
If the service goes ahead, it could be attractive to conservatives who believe that mainstream social networks are biased against right-wing ideologies.
And major cloud service providers such as Microsoft or Amazon may be reluctant to provide support due to accusations that Trump has spurred violence, which could force Trump to rely on smaller or foreign tech partners.
Miller said: I think this thing will be the most important event for social media, and it will completely redefine the game, and everyone will be waiting and watching to see exactly what President Trump does.
Miller said he was not able to go into detail at this point, but indicated that many companies have reached out to Trump regarding the project and he has been holding high-level meetings with several teams.
Miller added: This new platform will be large, and he expected that it will attract tens of millions of people, and he refused to go into details when asked whether Trump would create the platform himself or would work with another company to build it.
“I think the president knows the direction he wants to take here, and this new platform will be big and everyone wants it, and it will bring millions and tens of millions of people to this new platform,” Miller said.
Since January, Trump has been suspended indefinitely from Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms for inciting violence after his supporters besieged Capitol Hill.
He had more than 80 million followers on Twitter before he was banned, and in the week following Trump’s Twitter ban, erroneous information about election fraud across several social media platforms decreased by nearly 73 percent, from 2.5 million to 688,000 mentions, according to Data from social analytics company Zignal Lab.
